These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Lord of Light

Then, the whole point of the rebellion is that they aren't actually gods and he's sick of pretending to be. Having elements of bigotry in his thinking and a plethora of sexual hang-ups is about as human as it gets.
Also Sam is tired of keeping of the charade of being something they're not (even pretending to be Buddha annoys him), and Sam's comments are more like calling out Brahma/Madeleine of his/her own hatred of his/her own femininity.
